re:Naissance Opera

re:Naissance Opera is raising funds for its 2018-19 season, which hopes to see the creation of two new projects that celebrate women and their creativity: "Sanctuary & Storm" a new opera by Canadian composer Tawnie Olson and Canadian librettist, Robert Barker which examines the the roles and struggles of women through a reimagined dialogue between two of the most powerful women in medieval Europe: Hildegard of Bingen and Eleanor of Aquitaine. "Bilitis In Love / Bilitis Amoureuse" an interdisciplinary performance that brings together new compositions, historical instruments, contemporary dance and body painting to portray the story of Bilitis, a fictional Grecian courtesan, as she reflects on her experiences as a courtesan and her own sexuality.
